The WHO announce their 3rd ever Global Policy

A Global Injection Safety campaign was announced in Geneva on the 23rd and 24th February 2015, by DG Dr Margaret Chan. This policy will aim to reduce unnecessary injections worldwide and ensure that only AD (Auto Disable)/RUP (Reuse Prevention) syringes are used for the therapeutic (curative) sector.

The policy highlights the need for global donors, manufacturers and MOH to work together and confirms data from a cost effectiveness analysis will make enormous savings:

For every dollar invested an average of $14.57 could be saved from reduced costs in treatment of HIV, HBV and HCV.
